Well, unfortunately you don't have a very good oc'n setup. I dont' know much about the 8ihxp, but just turn up the fsb a little at a time (usually 3-5fsb), and do a lot of testing in between. Most of the 2.8's didn't fare very well. Also, make sure that you have the AGP/PCI locked (being an intel chipset I'm pretty sure you shoul still have that). If you get stuck at some point, your motherboard should still have the x3 and x4 options for the ram, turn it back down to x3 (someone who has this board can probably tell you exactly what it is...on my th7 it was just x3 or x4 for memory speeds) and test some more. GL and let us know how you do!
